MoMA Resurrects a Lost Landmark of Black Film History | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

“100 Years in Post-Production: Resurrecting a Lost Landmark of Black Film History,” currently on view at Museum of Modern Art. provides a never before seen look at 101-year-old film footage of the earliest known surviving feature film with a cast of black actors. The footage was found among 900 negatives from the Biograph Studio, which MoMA’s founding Film Curator, Iris Barry, acquired in 1939. Since all of the films featuring black cast members from the early 20th-century are considered lost, this rare discovery of the 1913 rushes launched an intensive research project to identify members of production, crew, and actors.
